The ending of my final Fall Term ever brings bittersweet feelings. I’m so relieved to be one step closer to my future (I’m quite future-oriented).

WGN Radio Internship

I’ve finally gotten around to writing my blog about my summer internship. Maybe it’s because the longer I put it off, the longer I can deny that summer is really over? Probably. For nine weeks, I had the opportunity to intern at WGN Radio in the Tribune Tower in Chicago. I interned for the news […]

A fruit basket of thoughts
